Loved It

We got there at 8:00am even though check in time is not til 3:00pm we checked right into our room. Check in was timely, mentioned I was there for my birthday and she gave me a free breakfast for two. Now their breakfast is exspensive so that was worth a lot,and the breakfast was wonderful. We upgraded to the Amsterdam Wing with a balcony, now I don't know about the other rooms but we loved ours. We loved that we didn't have to go through the hotel lobby when we came and left. Also brought us a box of chocolates and bottle of water. We stayed there a week and loved it. Yes a couple of small things could have been better but we will stay there again.

Past its prime, needs significant work

This is not a 5-star hotel under any contemporary rating standard. Everything except the towels and staff needed to be upgraded, refreshed, modernized, and brought to international standards. In the US, I would compare this to staying at Howard Johnson with a friendly staff.

Spacious room, good location

A decent hotel at a good location, with reasonable price! There's also a good Irish pub right next to it. Ask for room with a view over Dam Centrum though.
